Publisher Description

She was from the hills of Yorkshire, country born and bred. He was a city boy. By the stream where they fished they were two young people falling in love. Overhead, the bombers roared, threatening to blow their idyllic world, so young, so fresh, to smithereens.

    " Sentimental and inspiring story of the bonds between the crewmembers of an RAF bomber and the strain on their relationship when the pilot falls for a WAF. Nice description of night bombing operations while flying the twin-engine Vickers Wellington "Wimpy" bomber. "

    " A tad upsetting really, generally quite a fan of Nevil Shute but this just started... and continued... and nothing changed or happened. "

    " I love Nevil Shute. His books are so well written and in such detail it's impossible not be with the characters throughout this book. A Town Like Alice is probably the best written, but his is a close second. "

    " A very early novel (novella, really) which shows some of Shute's developing interest in how war affects young (fighting) men and women. Better than bad ... not great. "

    " Very much a book of the era with brave, stiff upper lip English characters, who are still very likeable. A little predictable in parts but an enjoyable read. "
